Print Top for Travel Wear for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Dinner Attire
Quote of the day: “A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities; an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.” Reginald B. Mansell
For the last week of our vacation, I’m examining a third “essential” for traveling–a print top. To me, this adds some interest to the many basic pieces we end up packing for our travels. If it’s a button down blouse, then the nice part is it can be worn as a jacket. If it’s a short sleeve shirt, then it can be layered with a cardigan! The ensembles shown are meant for a dinner experience. I’ve shown Jodie’s travel capsule (here), Nancy’s travel capsule (here) and Charlotte’s travel capsule (here) for our 2-3 week vacations!!
50’s Print Top: This blouse is a washable silk and very lightweight. So much so that the sleeves started separating from the body–nothing my mother couldn’t fix with a little extra melon colored material!!
60’s Print Top: I love how this shirt is fitted at the bottom yet has a flowy overpiece that is asymmetrical!

70’s Print Top: Mom added her scarf for warmth since the dinner area tended to be well ventilated (or as I say, freezing!)
